Online learning is fast becoming a preferred method of learning for many students. In surveys, students most often say that work, personal and family schedules, along with distance from a college make it necessary for them to enroll in our online courses and programs. Online learning gives you the opportunity to gain knowledge using current technology within a flexible learning environment and schedule. You can attend class from anywhere, as long as you have access to a personal computer with an Internet connection. You can access your course 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. You can work at your own pace and enjoy a good deal of flexibility as to when you choose to “attend” class, however keep in mind that each online course has a definite timeline and weekly deadlines.
